in washington. >>> still to congress on the show, russia has joined the wto. it did it just four months ago, but complaints with its lack of compliance with the laws are already stacking up. we'll get a view when we come back. >>> wto regulations are valid according to a top trade lawyer. karen spoke to an expert and asked why the u.s. invariably features as the main protagonist. >> i think there's a number of factors going on here. first of all, i think it's absolutely normal for the united states to be the most tiff wto dispute settlement participate. if you look at the figures, i think they have been the most active every single year since the wto was founded. it's a natural by-product of the huge size of the u.s. economy. they're the most active trading nation so they're going to trigger the most disputes. they sue the most and they are sued the most. that's absolutely normal. i think presidential politics played into this, as well. as you saw in the last stages of the campaign, both candidates, including president obama wanted to look tough on trade issues and filed a number of cases a

uncertain. billionaire investor and russia's wealthiest man alisher usmanov told cnbc's geoff cutmore that rebalance of growth is need. >> 2013 will be a year where we need to search for solutions. there is a big discussion going on about the state of the global economy. everyone is involved in that debate, in that discussion about wa to do. governments, central banks, economists, businessmen, scholars. so as far as i'm concerned, what really worried me and what i think is the real cause of the uncertainty is the enormous disparity that exists between the various monetary and other derivatives on the one hand and the global gdp. the derivatives, surpass many, many times the global gdp. there is too much of that. a mechanism needs to be found to reduce this disparity, minimize it. this is the cause of the instability, the volatility, of stagnation and sometimes even political crisis. so some mechanism to get out of this disparity will need to be found. and so what i'm hoping is that in 2013, the central banks of the united states, europe, and china will find a solution to at stop the g

in on their domestic economy, you were saying latin america and russia could be the stars in the out-- and the outperformers in 2013 s. that correct? >> absolutely. okay, there's two things. i think demand, you know, even though they say china's softening, i think actually their demand for resources is continuing to stay stable because as they reshift gears into becoming a domestic economy, they still need inputs. china is not a very natural resource-rich country. they continue to need to import natural resources from both russia and latin america. japan, by the way, is a huge story for 2013. i think japan is going to control their currency issues and really going to start pushing up export. so they're going to be pulling in natural resources from russia, as well. i think both russia as well as latin america are going to be huge performers. of course, government reform plays a big role in that. but i think that's also looking good. >> thank you, ron. so great to get your insight this morning. that's ron shaw with gina ventures. >> thank you. >>> all right. coming up on the show, want
